How Does God Keep His Promises
What king of promises does God make today? What longing does he fulfill?
Abraham "believed the Lord, and he credited it to him as righteousness"
God Promised to give Abraham all that he longed for...and more
''Through your offspring all nation on earth will be blessed, because you have obeyed me" Gen 22:18
Human being haven changed much in 4,000 years. the longing for children and the desire for land still crop up with surprising emotional power.
When God wanted Abraham's attention, he promised him land and more sons than he could count. to a Babylonian emigrant, 75 years old an childless, owning nothing but his tents and animals, the promises sounded wonderful.
In fact, they sounded impossible.Yet, because God himself was making the promise, Abraham "believed the Lord, and he credited it to him as righteousness" (Gen 15:6)
For the God who had created the heavens and the earth, making good on the promises was an easy matter. But God did nor make it easy for Abraham. Not until 25 years later,when he was 100, did the promise of a son come true. Then, incredibly, God told Abraham to make a human sacrifice of his little boy. It was really asking too much.
Astonishingly, Abraham followed God's orders. And gave him back his son.
